A fireplace can be the centerpiece of your home, or simply a distinct accent piece to a nook, or outdoor patio. No matter where your fireplace is, it is sure to bring any family together.

SOME THINGS TO CONSIDER

Are you ready to add a traditional fireplace to your home? Here are some things to ask yourself before moving forward.

A masonry fireplace is structurally integrated into the home design as an architectural feature. A masonry fireplace will be constructed while your home is being built. It is also possible to add a masonry fireplace during a remodel.  Options include fire brick in various colors and patterns with are installed in individual pieces. A gas log can be added if desired.

Prefabricated, also commonly known as factory-built fireplaces are an available alternative to a masonry fireplace. The price point of a prefabricated fireplace is typically lower than that of a masonry fireplace. A prefabricated fireplace is not a part of your home’s structure; consisting of insulated metal walls and air cooled venting. Firebrick is stamped and somewhat limited in pattern and color.

Gas logs can be added to your fireplace in a wide variety of designs. A decorative chimney cap will add to the finished architectural design of your home.
